The tree just gave up and died, the house is for sale and will likely be torn down; it sits an a beautiful piece of land between Woodbury and Washington, Connecticut. The tree will be removed to make way for a much grander house. I’m not sure which affects me more.
I wrote about the house on my personal blog here https://stevenwillardimages.wordpress.com.
